November 2017 Press Release
Parish Council grants
The Parish Council has awarded grants this month of £1,000 to the Friends of Stoke Park, towards the costs of renovating their planted areas, £1,000 to Stoke Park Infants Association towards the next phase of their exciting outdoor play area, and £800 to 1st Bishopstoke Scouts to replace the doors to their storage area so that equipment can be kept safe and dry.
The Armistice Service at Bishopstoke Memorial Hall was well attended as usual, and was a solemn marking of the day. The local churches gave the service and wreaths were laid by a number of community groups. We now look for to next year’s service, being the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One.
